“Het verhaal van Rudolf Nureyev is een verhaal van passie, zowel in het leven als in de dans. De complete overgave van een artiest aan zijn ambacht. Een voorstelling over een stervende man die zocht naar een thuis, naar acceptatie en naar de liefde, maar alles vond in de schoonheid én de wreedheid van ballet.”, zegt producent Christian Seijkens. “Dat Jan Nureyev moest spelen was voor ons meteen duidelijk. Hij neemt het verleden, de bouw, de inzet en de passie van een danser allemaal mee in de rol.”
